Earlier today, Samsung announced the latest high-end device in its Note series of large-format smartphones: the Galaxy Note 8. The new model is the Korean manufacturer's first device with a dual-camera on the back, but while Samsung is a little late to the dual-cam game, at least on paper, the Note 8's camera specs look quite promising.
The camera module combines a 26mm equivalent 12MP wide-angle module (with 1/2.55" sensor, F1.7 aperture and optical image stabilization) with a 52mm equivalent tele camera. Like pretty much all other tele implementations we have seen on smartphones, the secondary camera comes with a smaller sensor and slower aperture than the main module - 1/3.6" and F2.4 to be exact.
However, the Note 8 is the first dual-cam smartphone we are aware of to feature optical image stabilization not only on the main camera, but also on the tele lens.
As you would expect, the dual-camera comes with a background-blurring portrait mode and can also record pictures with both cameras at the same time. 4K video, a 240 fps slow-motion mode at 720p, and an 8MP front camera are on board as well.
Images can be viewed and edited on a massive 6.3" Quad-HD+ display that also allows for dual-window operation. Computing power is provided by an octa-core chipset that, depending on region, comes either from Qualcomm or Samsung's Exynos in-house brand. All of these components are wrapped up in a water and dust resistant (IP68) metal unibody that comes with the S-Pen stylus that is characteristic for the the Note series and offers improved sensitivity over previous models.
The Note 8 will be released in stores on September 15th. US pricing for the unlocked model has not been released yet, through carrier T-Mobile the Note 8 will be available from $930.
